Dark humour and whirlwind romance,
This review is from: The Colour of a Dog Running Away (Paperback)This book literally kept me gripped until the very end. The whole story wasn't like anything I'd ever read before, successfully revealing to the reader the underworld of Barcelona while we watch a touching love story unfold.
The story weaves together an interesting mix of characters and settings- from Spanish drunks in the slums of Barcelona to a serene and calm setting in the mountains, which hide a strict religious cult from the eyes of the world. The characters themselves seem to linger in the mind long after you have read it.
If you like stories that stand out on their own for being different, or if you want to be shown an entirely different yet believable world, then consider this book- I promise you won't be disappointed.
